Usually, a hotel and its service is never so great that a review is even possible. It was this past June that I attended a surprise birthday for my cousin in the main dining area. With a table of 12, we understood if a perfect experience was not possible- especially with two small children. But the staff perfectly, and I... More

I recently attended a wedding here on the 24th of July 2015. I don't usually take the time to write hotel reviews but after my experience I felt I needed too. I'm a coeliac and although weddings are usually joyous occasions I usually find myself a little anxious when it comes to sitting down to have the meal. More times... More

Great spa and good value here. Drinks in the rooftop bar were great, and even blankets/ heaters if you were cold. Minor point, but bar snacks only from a vending machine??? Would still go back here and the views are pretty too. Warm and friendly service from all staff.

This is a great hotel. The rooms are huge, extremely comfortable and soft beds with a decent-sized tv and a good wifi signal in the room. The check-in staff are friendly and attentive, always smiling and are very good-looking imo (nice bonus). I didn't eat here so can't comment on the food, but on the night of my stay the... More

From the first booking of my large group (30+) to our night in roof top bar the service we received was top class. The reservation manager was extremely helpful and responded promptly to all my enquires during the planning stage. All facilities we used in hotel were excellent and all staff extremely helpful.

Checked in with a lovely friendly young receptionist think her name was Catherine (dark haired receptionist sorry if I got your name wrong) she was so friendly, helpful and attentive. We had dinner in the Lir Bar both nights we stayed as it was... More

Had a nice stay here in February. Rooms were comfortable and bathroom was nice although the the bath was small. There was very little view from the hotel as it is not in a great location. We dined in the bar on both nights for dinner, one lunch and two breakfasts and the food was very good at these times.... More

It's a hard place to find, two different roundabouts off the main highway, but a warm welcome awaits even with a late night arrival. The porter was especially good, seeing my daughter was tired and hungry, he offered her a choice of sandwiches, and opened the kitchen to make her one. Above and beyond. One problem was how narrow the... More

It was so annoying! The lady at reception said it was... More
